A woman killed a random person by pushing him in front of an oncoming train, according to police in the United Kingdom.

Now, the drunk woman who killed the man by pushing him into a moving train has been jailed.

31-year-old Charrissa Loren Brown-Wellington of Canal Street, Chadderton, has been sentenced at the Manchester Crown Court Crown Square to five years in prison after pleading guilty to manslaughter.

One Sunday, Brown-Wellington spent the afternoon drinking in Piccadilly Gardens before making her way to Victoria Train Station.

After getting off a train at the station at about 7:30 p.m., she randomly provoked an argument with 30-year-old Philip Carter on the platform.

The argument escalated before Brown-Wellington lunged at Philip and pushed him as a train was beginning to move into the station.

Philip fell down the gap between the two cars of the train, which continued moving.

Philip form Blackley suffered catastrophic injuries as a result and was pronounced dead at the scene.

During a police interview, Brown-Wellington admitted to pushing Philip but claimed she didn’t mean to kill him.

Speaking after the sentencing, Senior Investigating Officer Bob Tonge said: “We may never know definitively what prompted Brown-Wellington to confront Philip Carter but what we do know is that as a result of her actions, a man lost his life in the most horrific circumstances.

“He suffered a brutal death all because she lost her temper and she will now have to live with that as she carries out her prison sentence.

“Although it won’t bring him back, I hope the sentence passed here will bring Philip’s loved ones some comfort to know that justice has been served.”

Brown-Wellington has a criminal history.

4 years ago, she was sentenced to 4 months in prison after being convicted of criminal damage, assaulting a police officer and using racially aggravated threatening or abusive words or behavior.
